I just looked into the DIM Detox formula... apparently it has a lot of other ingredients including CDG. It also looks like it focuses on liver support (hence the name) since it also contains things like NAC, ALA, and milk thistle. Here's a link to the source: http://www.pureencap.../dim-detox.html
I've read mixed stories on CDG (calcium-d-glucarate) — some women have success with it while others don't (just like any supplement though, I guess.) Did your doctor look at all the ingredients before telling you that it was okay to take while pregnant? I don't know much about it but I thought CDG wasn't safe during pregnancy... I am also still convinced that DIM shouldn't be taken while pregnant either, since it's directly influencing your hormones and is an anti-androgen.
If you can handle all of the ingredients, it looks like a pretty good supplement but it's quite expensive. I would be worried to take it personally because there is so much in it... I wouldn't know which ingredient was causing side effects if any. I'm glad it works for you though, LeksiBabi! (:
By the way, I get liver support from l-cysteine (NAC is a product of l-cysteine) because I do drink. I wonder if this helped at all while I was on DIM. Something else to think about!
I didn't know DIM was an anti-androgen is that right?
Also is it better for a DIM supplement to contain all those other ingredients like CDG and milk thistle?
The reason I ask is just because I take a supplement which contains 80mg DIM and that song with skin care helped my severe acne. But more recently things have slowly got worse, namely after ovulation and all throughout my second phase of my menstrual cycle..I am considering purchasing this DIM detox but am so dubious because I've spent so much money on stuff that doesn't work...it's like going out on a limb for me before asking about RoaccutAne.
